Steelers offense faces tough test in stout Jacksonville pass defense

Week 5 Running Back Rankings

Week 5 Running Back Rankings

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers at home at Heinz Field this Sunday at 1:00 PM EST. That set up a 53-yard drive that Fournette - the No. 4 overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft - capped with a memorable touchdown dive from the Steelers' two-yard line.

Jacksonville ended the game with 18 consecutive running plays, milking clock and grinding away with Leonard Fournette, who had 181 rushing yards and two touchdowns, including a 90-yard burst in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Amazingly, against the 32nd-ranked run defense in the National Football League, the Steelers opted to throw the ball 55 times, compared with 19 called running plays. Chris Reed is also an important player for the offense in the game against the Steelers as the first right guard backup. What was notable was that several of Sunday's big plays came with the Jaguars trailing. Kicker Jason Myers failed to make the extra point, but the Jaguars led 13-9 with 6:38 remaining in the third quarter. Smith returned it 28 yards for the touchdown. Their strength is a defense led by Campbell, Paul Posluszny, Myles Jack, and Jalen Ramsey. It's another for the defense to provide big, game-altering plays when trailing and with the game in doubt. On one, Fowler ran down Jets RB Bilal Powell from behind and prevented him from gaining a first down late in the game. They won in a tough venue on the road.

The Jaguars have only two other healthy receivers who have caught a pass this season: undrafted rookie Keelan Cole (four catches) and veteran Arrelious Benn (one), whose main role is on special teams. Both of them have missed many games. They've got great wide receivers and a quarterback that can't consistently get them the ball. Yet, while it's hard to know what fans and bettors alike can expect from the rookie signal caller, it should be a little easier to spot a significant edge the Vikings have coming into this one - and if they can exploit it, that could give them the edge to escape with a pivotal NFC North road victory. This was memorable stuff.

The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped their game this week to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yet, with kickoff coming up, they have exactly that. When you beat Pittsburgh by outrushing them 231-70 you are making a very loud statement. They are also 5-2 ATS in their last 7 head-to-head meetings with the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
